If you’re currently dealing with the aftermath of a shitty relationship, Hailee Steinfeld is right there with you. On her heartbreaking new ballad “Wrong Direction” — rumored to be about none other than former beau Niall Horan — she comes down hard not on her ex, but on herself for not paying attention to the red flags.
“Couldn’t even see you through the smoke,” the Dickinson star sings on the pre-chorus. “Lookin’ back, I probably should’ve known.” But love has a way of clouding our judgment. And based on the track’s chorus, her ex’s gaslighting tactics tricked her into thinking they were happy. “Loved me with your worst intentions,” she sings, accompanied by piano and violin. “Didn’t even stop to question / Every time you burned me down / Don’t know how; for a moment it felt like heaven.” —Jordyn Tilchen
